Transport and Logistics Living Lab

Posted by: data61

February 10, 2015

The Transport and Logistics Living Lab is an exhibition space located at Data61 in the Australian Technology Park, Sydney, and in every sense, is a living and breathing lab, with active participants from industry, research and government, sharing information and collaborating on joint projects to drive the productivity of the nation.

This national Living Lab is one of several ‘Knowledge Hubs’ that are jointly supported by industry members and the NSW Government. As a Knowledge Hub, the Living Lab will facilitate the connection of a fragmented Transport and Logistics industry to innovation and best-practice activities with the goal of making Australia’s transport and logistics sector more productive, efficient, greener and safer.

The Living Lab provides a national collaboration platform where participants regularly meet to explore ways to address industry-wide logistics related challenges and opportunities. The world-class capabilities of our research participants give the lab the potential to make Australia’s logistics: more efficient; greener; and safer.

The Living Lab’s industry-driven approach can address pain points such as logistics inefficiencies, blockages at interfaces, lack of standardisation, and fragmented visibility of end-to-end transportation processes. The lab explores new ways to orchestrate logistics services across multiple service providers, modes of transportation and countries. Results from the Living Lab will be commercialised by the participants leading to new products, processes and services in logistics. We expect outcomes to have a positive impact on the competitive positioning of Australia’s businesses and on GDP.
